Working in partnership with the City of Olympia, the Washington Center is announcing plans to bring some cheer to downtown Olympia this holiday season. COVID-19 protocols apply to all shows, and the entire holiday schedule is subject to Safe Start Washington regulations.


From November 28 through Dec. 13 each Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM – 5 PM, free gift wrapping will be available in the lobbies of the State Theater and the Washington Center. Free gift wrapping will also be available at the State Theater Dec. 19 and 20. Bring your receipt from a downtown merchant and we’ll wrap your gift for free! This is just one of the many ways we’re helping support our local downtown businesses during this difficult time.
